There are a lot of different maps. Not all of the areas appear on any given map of the test site. Some area numbers were changed (such as Area 400 and 401 becoming Area 25).

Area 51 appeared on maps from about 1959 to 1977 (technically, the boundaries appeared on maps as early as 1957 but it didn't receive its number until June 1958).

Area 31, a buffer zone west of Yucca Mountain rarely appears on maps and Area 13, northwest of Area 51, almost never does except in documents related to Project 57. Area 52 (Tonopah Test Range) and Area 58 (Central Nevada Test Area) are identified in official documents but I have never seen them labeled on a map.

To add confusion, Tonopah Test Range is subdivided into areas with some numbers duplicating those at the Nevada Test Site (Area 2, Area 10, etc.). Also, some people confuse Air Force range numbers (such as Range 61, etc.) for area numbers but there is no correspondence.

The geographical placement of the assigned areas has no basis in logic, common sense, chronological order, or geography. It appears to be entirely random.

thanks again for the help. Seems area 31 and up to 50 are missing and them all being part of an interconnected hub does make sense. Its just amazing how some of the areas are located near or within the Nevada nuke test sites. Only other thing I can come up with is the other locations are below ground somewhat stacked and interconnected. Makes me think of the CAD design of Raccoon city from Resident evil how its built mainly underground. You would think with all the intelligence involved they the 1z who wish us not to look into these types of things would of thought of better ways to keep the sheeple from looking for the masters toolbox. But all the secrecy only drives some more into asking questions. Guess its just a little inside mind game to play on our sheeple minds.

Wow thank you for the informative post amazing! Do you think some "sinister" activities go on in these places that are not known to the public places like 32 to 50 and 52 to 57 ect. I remember hearing how when stealth tech was being developed they were burning some of the toxic materials on ground. So is it reaching too far to consider there are other unhealthy/deadly to employee experiments going on. Because I think people died during some of the fires.

thank you tauristercus for the information
It would be a nice field tripp for wanting individuals to see what lies beneath, even if we see some 11 ft tall humanoid bat creature that still speaks english
I dont think we would be too scared EARDRUMS might get messed up but would be nice to see were the REAL TAX MONEY GOES.

I know not everyone puts much faith in commercial television programs about this kinda thing, but i remember seeing an episode of UFO hunters with Bill Birnes about area 51 (See Linkys). They had some good information about it. And i belive they were the first people to get actual high definition footage of the base.

Part 1: Linky
Part 2: Linky
Part 3: Linky
Part 4: Linky
Part 5: Linky

Alot of the time i tend to stay away from commercial programs but you just gotta love Birnes, i mean how much respect does a man command who walks upto a Naval base on the west coast of the bermuda triangle openly shouting "Yo! Where the aliens at" to the point where they launch a black helicopter to get rid of him lol.

Not the most tactful person but he's brilliant to watch lol

Perhaps the Identification name came about as a tribute to the fifth month (MAY) and the 1st day...
May Day is known on all levels, by all the world, as the tribute to the working man
communists/socialists/progressives alike.

see, history of May Day:

Construction at Groom Lake began on May 4, 1955. so there is no May Day connection. Also, it wasn't called Area 51 until June 1958 when the 38,400-acre block of land was added to the Nevada Test Site.

Area 52 is Tonopah Test Range. It is identified as such under the "Area Listing" section of the NV Organization and Personnel Guide published by the department of Energy Nevada Operations office in June 1990. Sadly, information for Area 51 is not listed.

Area 31 is just a buffer zone off the west side of Area 25. It is adjacent to Yucca Mountain and the former Nuclear Rocket Development Area.

A lot of area numbers were simply never assigned. Don't expect to find a lot of hidden "areas." One of the missing numbers may have been assigned to the Project SHOAL site near Fallon where a nuclear device was detonated underground for comparison with local seismic activity.

There are no secret underground bases within the Nevada Test and Training Range. Tunnel complexes at the Nevada Test Site don't count. These were just places to test nuclear explosive devices. In most cases, the subterranean location served to contain all radionuclides produced in the blast but there were occasional instances of venting. Yucca Mountain doesn't count as an underground base either. It was built as a nuclear waste storage repository that has yet to be used due to political issues. There are no underground facilities at the National Classified Test Facility (Area 51). It is less expensive and just as effective to simply hide secret airplanes inside conventional hangars, and many such buildings have been constructed over the past two decades.

That is quite possibly one of the more ridiculous things I've seen on here.
